Notes

* Brent, Billy, Mickey
** Quick new light show rap during Sunshine Daydream

Here's the story about this show - we had seen a lot of shows on this East Coast Spring Tour. The Nassau shows were the last on the tour. We were running late (used to happen a lot with my group). I got around my seats just after the lights went out and just grabbed any patch for the first set - I don't know what kind of mics, but the tapes don't sound that good. I was tired and had had enough of the taping area (no official taping section in those days) and heard that my friends were hanging out in the obstructed view seats behind the stage. I went there and it was great - the opposite of what you would think Nassau Coliseum would be like - not a lot of people, room to relax, and an interesting view of the band. There were repeaters pointed directly at us so it sounded great. Some people nearby were taping with Crown PZMs so I patched in with them and I think the tapes sound great.

There are a few glitches where decks in front of me did not know how to hold their record button down while making tape flips or changes. I cleaned them up the best I could, some you can hear and others are barely noticeable.
